PITTSBURGH, Pa. (CBS) — A Pennsylvania restaurant is under fire over a controversial menu item.
Cure in Pittsburgh served horse tartare during a special event on Monday.
Horse welfare advocate Joy Braunstein started an online petition calling for a ban on horse meat being served in any Pennsylvania restaurant.
She argues that horses can contain a lot of pesticides or other toxins, and should not be for human consumption.
Cure’s owner says the dish was available for one night only and it is not a part of its usual menu.
